Shoplifting on the rise

Shayal Devi
Friday, May 30, 2014

EIGHT shoplifting offences were recorded by police in the Namaka and Martintar business district during the first quarter of the year.

This was revealed by Namaka station officer Taito Susau during the Namaka and Martintar business house committee meeting in Nadi yesterday.

According to Mr Susau, criminal offences in the areas could be reduced through the Duavata community policing initiative.

"One of the important issues is how we are going to tackle the crime problem of the community and the answer is we have to work together with members of public to achieve this," he said.

"We have already started this initiative in the district level for Namaka as we have formed our crime prevention committees and I believe most of the districts in the Western Division have done this."

He said apart from getting business houses involved in the Duavata initiative, they were targeting schools in the area also.
